Tilda Swinton’s Fashionable Transformation
Actress Tilda Swinton undergoes a bold transformation for her films. Beyond the camera, she looks like a mythical creature lost on Earth. Tribute in pictures.
Df movie awards and premieres can be live again this has one important advantage: you can finally see Tilda Swinton again. From her platinum blonde, rose shimmering quiff, to her alabaster complexion, to her headstrong and unique looks, most of which come from her favorite label, Haider Ackerman or Schiaparelli.
Tilda Swinton does not have her own Instagram account. She rarely gives insight into her personal life as a Scottish landlady, but her art is so captivating that you just miss taking selfies from the dining table. You can watch Swinton with fascination as he transforms into a pale aristocrat (“Orlando”), sometimes into a witch with a lion’s mane (“The Chronicles of Narnia”) or one with diamond jewels. In Rich Milanese Woman (“I’m Love”), Swinton has played with Hollywood stereotypes and gender stereotypes throughout her career, shunning style pigeons and always being identified as Tilda Swinton despite this versatility. Is. In the eyes of fashion designers, who regularly dress her for her movie roles as well, this only makes her more interesting. Swinton has been Chanel’s muse for many years and enriches the red carpet with looks that sometimes underline her androgyny, sometimes contrasts and always conveys a resemblance to strong colors and extreme silhouettes.
The fact that at 60 she still looks like an everlasting mythical creature, reinforces the notion that this woman did not come from this planet. Another film with her will finally be released in October, along with Wes Anderson’s “The French Dispatch,” which just presented at Cannes. To that end, she’s transformed, too: as a journalist with a fiery red perm and heavy gold jewelry.
Here’s another way to pass the time in lockdown: Last year Swinton shot the short film “La Voz Humana” with Pedro Almodovar. Swinton only shares a one-woman show about a different actress with Balenciaga’s stunning outfits.
Everything about this movie looks good: Villa Necchi Campiglio’s modernist interior, the fashion, and of course the lead actress herself. With a wave of melted caramel and pronounced Italian, Tilda Swinton plays a wife in a Milanese industrial family who becomes involved in a relationship with a cook. The minimalist dress by Raf Simons for Jil Sander received an Oscar nomination for costume design in 2010.
From indie darling to blockbuster queen: In 2000, Leonardo DiCaprio’s thriller “The Beach” attracted more lion-loving teenage girls than good reviews. Today, Tilda Swinton as the sun-scorched sinister leader of a hippie commune has a reason to revisit the story of adventurous backpackers on an island in Thailand.
Timeless Beautiful: As Orlando, Tilda Swinton lives more than four centuries and transforms from man to woman in the 1992 film of the same name. The film shaped Swinton’s interest in “gender fluidity” and her bisexual style, to which she still holds true today.
Anyone would want to have friends like this: At the Cannes Film Festival, Tilda Swinton and Timothée Chalamet are charmed by friendly cuddles—both of which appear in Wes Anderson’s new film, “The French Dispatch.” She also has great taste in fashion. Swinton wore a dress-tuxedo hybrid by Haider Ackerman, a metallic suit by Chalamet Tom Ford.
Limestone pale under the Sicilian sun and Dior outfits: in “A Bigger Splash”, a remake of Luca Guadagnino’s classic “La Piscine”, Swinton a rock star on a vacation to relax and find herself on Pantelleria play the role of. She cannot speak due to a laryngeal operation, but the exchange with her husband, a spontaneous ex-boyfriend, and her daughter is still very emotional.
Metamorphosis: At the end of June, Tilda Swinton presented a new project in Rome about Italian director Pier Paolo Pasolini. With focused deliberation, she tries her way through the costumes of Pasolini’s films. “Embinge Pasolini” runs somewhere between exhibition and performance and was created in collaboration with curator Olivier Cellard.
Swinton isn’t the only star in her family: her three cocker spaniels Snowbear, Dora and Rosie, have won “Palm Dogs,” a film award for dogs in Cannes. The trio appears with Swinton in the film “The Souvenir Part II”. The dogs have already gained acting experience in a music video in which they roam the beach to work by Handel. It was personally directed by the mother.
Men by your side: Tilda Swinton has shared her life with artist Sandro Kopp since 2004. The father of her two children, the dramatic John Byrne, plays an important role in her life: the three of them lived together for a long time at his estate in Scotland. A “menage a trois”, as Swinton explained in several interviews, was never conducted.
